Barton Springs. If you can only hit one place while in Austin, I would say this is it.

I have no idea how to begin with our trip to Austin…Woooweeee!

It was so, so fun. But I am still so, so tired. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a crazy 5 days…I OD’ed on BBQ (something I thought could never be possible), overheated in the 90+ heat, probably drank too much, swam a lot, met some awesome people…the list goes on.

Here are the highlights in photos…

Daytime Activities and Shopping:

Boating on Lake Austin and Lone Star Beer

Taking a look at thousands of amazing boots at Allen’s

There were SO many gorgeous boots…I wanted like 5 pairs, but they all were pretttttttty pricey. At least I have this picture to stare at.

Getting lost in Uncommon Objects. So many creepy displays, and the most uncommon antiques you’ve ever seen.

Playing Washers. I don’t think it gets any more Texas than that.

The Food:

Coffee from Jo’s

Brunch at South Congress Cafe – Bloody Mary, Migas, Carrot Cake French Toast, Ginger Mango Mimosa.

Shaved Ice from Sno Beach. Ice Cream on the bottom will change your life if you’ve never tried it that way.

BBQ from JMueller.

An Avocado Mango Margarita from Curras


Live Music at Continental Club

Zax for Happy Hour and Beer Night. They let you keep the glasses!

Trivia and Beer Samplers at Ginger Man

The table at Ginger Man. I Love Beer, but sorry Brad…

Kung Fu Saloon for Old-School Games

Like all vacations and trips, I didn’t get to hit every place I wanted or do everything that was on my “list.” But the best part is I know I will be back someday. Until we meet again Austin…You tired me out so good that you left me speechless!
